Left hand?  I've had great results, but I thought my 2x9 crossed Yagi was 
right-handed.  I'll try the other polarization (switched) during tonight's 
pass and see what happens.

Thanks for the tip,

Hi all,
Sometimes it helps to use audio compression
on the 1268.700 MHz FM uplink to AO-51.
BUT - first be sure to receive properly :-)

Remember the L/U downlink this week is on 435.150 MHz
and that it is Left Hand Circular.

Do not overdo it since the readability will suffer
when it is not necessary.
